"W" is for Wood Banner with Leather Lettering

I've had a bug about using leather scraps lately and finally figured out a way to incorporate them into wall art.

Leather, wood and rope are a few of my favorite things and I put them altogether to make these wood wall banners.

After I cut out the leather letters I add stitching in the center of each letter for detail which also mimics how they would be sewn onto a fabric backing.  The letters are then glued onto the wood banner.

And the leather creates just a hint of dimension coming off the wood surface.

These wood banners are posted in my Etsy shop if you're interested and I'm open to custom orders or other ideas if anyone has a good one!
